Dream the impossible dreamhouse–It works!
My husband and I have talked about moving for a long time, but never seemed to find the right house. I’m in real estate, so I look at houses EVERY DAY, and we still just couldn’t find the right place.
Then we saw the Secret, and decided to get specific. We wanted to stay in our same neighborhood, but have a bigger yard (all the lots are the same size, so this seemed impossible, but we asked for it anyway). We wanted a bigger house, preferably new (also rare in a neighborhood of 50-year-old houses). We made up a whole wish list including all kinds of details, like a front porch–even specifying which side of the neighborhood we wanted to be on. Then we just started feeling happy and grateful that our new house was being built for us… somewhere. I like to take long walks and I would just walk around the neighborhood feeling happy and grateful that we lived there, and knowing that someone somewhere was getting our new house ready for us.
Not too long after that, the universe delivered. I went to see a house that had just come on the market in our neighborhood. It was perfect–everything we asked for, including the front porch and the location within the neighborhood–and it’s on an unusual lot that is LITERALLY twice the size of every other lot in the neighborhood. And it’s brand new, too. It’s the impossible house on the impossible lot… our perfect dreamhouse!
“Too soon! TOO SOON!!!” I cried, because we weren’t anywhere NEAR ready to move–we still had about 3 dozen unfinished minor projects in our current house, and were in no position to sell or rent it out. Not yet, anyway. I told the universe, “We need more time!”
And the universe delivered again, and the builder accepted our offer with a delayed purchase date–9 months from the date we wrote the contract.
Some people might say I found it because I’m in real estate, and I got good terms because I negotiated them myself, but I’m telling you–I’ve been looking for THIS HOUSE for YEARS and didn’t find it until we started feeling grateful for it, and the 9-month delay (and other details) are UNHEARD OF around here. Even my colleagues can’t believe it! So I told them to watch The Secret! IT WORKS!!
